Anhkrehg - _Sacrificial Goat_
by: Adam Wasylyk (3 out of 5)
In reading the credits of the tape insert, "A Word from the Sound Engineer: I personally apologize for the lack of professionalism in this recording. Also, we should keep in mind that it is the musical content that matters the most, not the sound quality.", the first thing that came into my head was "Oh no." I was glad to see when listening to the 9-track tape that these words were too harsh. Although the production isn't great, it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. It's clear enough for all instruments to be heard well. Playing what could be described as slow-paced black metal with speed parts, and vocals of a husky, wailing type (which admittedly took a little getting used to), and a good amount of variety (musical intros for both sides of the tape, and even a song recorded backwards, the title track "taoG laicifircaS"), this is a good release, and along with Burning Moon (see previous review), production is the only thing holding them back.
